Item Properties

Property Name Description Type
_permissions The permissions that the authenticated user has to the item. array
geometry Geographic boundary, formatted as a GeoJSON polygon. json
id Globally unique item identifier. string
acquired Timestamp that the item was captured. datetime
anomalous_pixels Percentage of pixels that may have errors. Represented spatially in the UDM. double
clear_confidence_percent ---
clear_percent ---
cloud_cover Average percentage of cloud coverage. double
cloud_percent ---
epsg_code Ortho tile grid cell that the item is located in (not used if Scene). integer
ground_control Positional accuracy of the item. If the item has uncertain positional accuracy, this value will be false. boolean
gsd Ground sample distance - the distance between pixel centers as measured on the ground in meters. double
instrument Name of the satellite instrument used to collect the image. string
item_type Name of the item type. string
light_haze_percent ---
pixel_resolution Pixel resolution of the imagery in meters. double
provider Name of the item provider (e.g. "planetscope", "rapideye"). string
published Timestamp that the item was published to the Planet API. datetime
publishing_stage Stage of publishing for an item. SkySatScenes will be first published in "preview" stage and graduate to a "finalized" stage. string
quality_category Planet image quality metric: "standard" or "test". To qualify for "standard" image quality an image must meet a variety of quality standards, for example: PAN motion blur less than 1.15 pixels, compression bits per pixel less than 3. If the image does not meet these criteria it is considered "test" quality. string
rows Number of rows in the image. integer
satellite_id Globally unique satellite identifier. string
strip_id The unique identifier of the image stripe that the item came from. string
sun_azimuth The angle of the sun, as seen by the observer, measured clockwise from the north (0 - 360). double
sun_elevation The angle of the sun above the horizon (0 - 90). double
updated Timestamp that the item record was last updated. datetime
usable_data Percentage of pixels that are usable, subtracting cloud cover and black fill. double
view_angle The satellite's across-track, off-nadir viewing angle. Positive numbers denote east, negative numbers denote west (-25 - +25). double
visible_confidence_percent ---
visible_percent ---
